The look at the DKNY Spring/Summer 2015 show in New York saw the brand revisiting its ‘90s roots. The models, a mix of street casting and regular models, were hand- picked for a diverse cast of characters that reflected the vibrant melting pot that is New York.

The hairstyles, created by Eugene Souleiman, Creative Director, Wella Professionals, took inspiration from iconic urban coifs: the gelled wave, the zig-zag parting, braids and a pony tail to create a “hot in the city” graphic look reminiscent of the Hip Hop culture of the ‘80s and ‘90s.  “I wanted to create a look that reflected the different New York mix of urban cultures, celebrated racial diversity, and had a slightly ‘old school’ feel to it. I wanted something strong that had a definite point of view,” added Eugene.
